Infoblox NIOS 5.1r3 released

November 4th, 2010 Posted in Infoblox

Infoblox NIOS 5.1r3 has been released today
New features are:
– Authenticated DHCP
– Option 82 Fixed address support
– Intermidate Certificates
– Enhanced MIB
– GUI enhancements
– API enhancements
– bloxTools enhancements
The most exciting new feature is definitely the “Authenticated DHCP”- feature.

Authenticated DHCP
You can now force user to register, using a captive web portal, before they receive a DHCP lease. The portal can be configured to use:
– Active Directory
– Gust access
– Or a combination of the above
You can also have multiple captive portals for redundancy, and configure them with custom graphics, acceptable use policies, and addition guest registration fields.
I would recommend waiting for version 5.1.r3-1 before upgrading in order to avoid any bugs. Current version is 5.1.r3-0.
The entire release notes can be downloaded from the Infoblox Support portal.
